The Samsung Chromebook 2 that we had reported about yesterday, has gone official in the US and is slated to be made available in screen configurations of 11.6-inch and 13.3-inch by next month. Both versions will hit store shelves in April this year and users will have to shell out at least $320 to lay their hands on one of these systems.

First of all, we would like to mention that the stitched faux-leather design like the one on the back panel of the Note 3 has been fitted on the Chromebook 2. The gadget can wake up in less than a second and cold boots take under 10 seconds. It has been optimized for Google+ Hangouts and you can expect instant access to various Google services as well.
